This little hotel is really fantastic. The location is good and in walking distance to Portofino harbour. The staff is extremely friendly and serviceminded and you really feel at home staying here. Great hotel for the money.

Dear Zeddie, it has been a privilege for me to contribute to your stay and to celebrate your girlfriend anniversary.

Fantastic location on the beach and the short walk to portfino was beautiful. Staff were friendly, welcoming and more than happy to help with advice about the local area. A lovely room with comfy bed. Would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking to explore the picturesque local area.

Best little find anywhere! Perfect location. Great breakfast Ambiance is important to me and this little gem is terrific. Clean, beautiful, cozy, quiet night's sleep, great windows that open with private shudders. A beautiful walk to Portofino. Great little town. We are experienced travelers who rely on comments from Trip Advisor. Save yourself time and book Hotel Argentina!

We have been traveling Europe in a car with another couple, rarely booking ahead we usually start looking for accomodation around 3pm. We were heading to Portofino but came across Hotel Argentina and stopped to ask the rates. We immediately felt at ease with George the owner, an extremely pleasant guy. We booked in for the night and George explained... More

Welcome was warm and convivial, from a host who would look out of place in anything other than white cotton trousers, his laugh lines forged from long summers of the good life, and it's immediately infectious. Even a taste of forced bonhomie is thirsted for, when arriving safely on Italian roads feels like some kind of miracle. The room seems... More

Blown away by the beauty of this area. This small, friendly, hotel is out of the bustle of Santa Margharita but only a short bus ride away, or walk to the beautiful Portofino. It has a guest house feel rather than a big chain hotel. Parking very close (20m) from the reception made it an easy first stop in Italy.... More

First and foremost this hotel is in a superb location to visit Portofino. It is a 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk into Portofino (you will be lucky to drive in as the police stop cars after mid-day as there is nowhere to park). We stayed here for four nights in the attic room with the massive sun... More

Portofino itself is quite expensive and this 2 star hotel is simply great hub to stop for few days to enjoy the beach and local attractions. Don't expect to see tipical chain hotel similar to Marriott or other brands. It's cozy, home style place with clean & nice bed, aircondition, shower and free wi-fi (which was working just perfect).
